Mind over Matter - health via consciousness: Snippets from Dr Bruce Lipton

Here are some notes from Dr Bruce Lipton, author of "The Biology of Belief: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter and Miracles".

Author Dr. Bruce Lipton is a former medical school professor and research scientist. His experiments, and those of other leading edge scientists, have examined in great detail the mechanisms by which cells receive and process information.

The implications of this research radically change our understanding of life. It shows that genes and DNA do not control our biology; that instead DNA is controlled by signals from outside the cell, including the energetic messages emanating from our positive and negative thoughts.

"In our world, things that are large in size, like cells, tissues, organs and bigger, can to some degree be
understood by using the physical laws of Newton . But when you get down to the level of the atoms and
molecules that make up the cells, you're dealing with the quantum realm. Allopathic medicine focuses
upon the larger physical realm in trying to understand how the body works. With Newtonian blinders
on, all they consider are physical interactions. They perceive of the body as a molecular machine, and
when it's not working, that implies some physical components of the body must be malfunctioning.

Their vision of disease is, "If the physical body is not working right, then throw in new molecules to
adjust the function." And those molecular fixes are called drugs. So they attempt to heal from that
mechanistic point of view. However, disease can manifest itself at different levels within the organism. If the problems arise from trauma damage to the physical body, allopathic medicine offers miraculous
healing opportunities. If I break a bone, need a new heart or got torn-up in a car accident, you can bet
that I would seek an allopathic physician to help me heal. They can rebuild tissues and they can rebuild
organs and transplant organs and fix bones and all these things. That's trauma. They do miracles with
trauma and that's where, if you get in an accident and break your leg, you want a medical doctor.

However, if my dis-eases are the result of malfunctions occurring within the cell, such as cancer,
Alzheimer's, auto-immune disease, these dysfunctions arise in the operation of the cell's molecules and
atoms. Dysfunctions at these levels are controlled by mechanisms that operate in the energy-based
interactions of the quantum realm.

BL: We have two interdependent minds providing for our awareness and behavior. The most powerful
processor of information is the subconscious mind that runs between 80-90% of our lives. It is like an
autopilot in that it can run our day-to-day life without any input from the conscious mind. The conscious
mind is a small part of the processor, but nonetheless one of the most advanced parts of our brain. The
conscious mind can be used to drive the system serving a s 'manual' control mechanism, your thoughts
can actually run the body. With training, yogis for example can regulate all their bodily functions
including metabolism, heart rate, body temperature and behavior of the immune system. But because
consciousness can think about the past and delve into the future, most of the time our conscious mind is
engaged with such activities and is therefore not 'present' to run the show at the moment of now. That
is why the subconscious mind runs most of the functions and behaviors that characterize our lives.

However, most people are unaware of the fact that the primary behaviors that are engaged by the
subconscious mind were downloaded into our mind before we were 6 years of age. We acquire these
behaviors by observing our parents, our peers and our teachers. This means that most of our behavior is
actually a replay of other people's behavior' this is where conflict enters our lives because their
behaviors are generally not in our best interests.

The dangerous thing is that the behavioral 'tapes' programmed in our subconscious are other peoples'
behaviors and most of these behaviors were acquired so early in life, that we are not even consciously
aware that we have or even use these programmed behaviors. Many of these early acquired behaviors
are limiting, self-sabotaging programs. Your personal beliefs are in your conscious mind while the
subconscious mind is a repository previously learned behaviors and reflexive instincts. The minds are
separate and an awareness in the conscious mind has no necessary counterpart in the subconscious
mind. Also, while you might become aware of new things in your consciousness, that new knowledge
does NOT change preexisting programs in your subconscious. Old traits hang on. We may try to override
limiting subconscious behavior using the conscious mind, but it will never change conflicting beliefs
programmed in your subconscious mind. That's why people have to use so much willpower to override
the subconscious mind and that's where the issue of 'power' comes in, because the subconscious mind
is millions of times more powerful in processing data than is the conscious mind. In my book there is
data that reveals that 20 million bits of information are processed per second in the subconscious mind;
while only 40 bits of information are processed in the conscious mind for the same second.
